Plein Air: Sketching Provincetown with Aaron Michael Thompson

July 6 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm


5 SESSIONS: JULY 6 – JULY 10, 9:30AM-12:30PM


Students will record their observations in sketchbook form on daily outings to significant sites. Provincetown is rich historically and visually, providing a host of plein-air subjects ideal for improving drawing and watercolor techniques. Students will also learn consolidation of materials for a variety of travel processes making travel and sketchbook more manageable. The concentration required in drawing directly from observation leads to a deeper understanding of Provincetown’s forms and rich cultural history.
